“Ode on a Grecian Urn”

In this poem, Keats uses a Urn and its drawings on it as his ideas of perfection. Here are the three images on it; he sees a boy and a girl about to kiss, a cow being clothed and celebrated before his sacrifice, and a boy playing music. Although all of these images do look like perfection, you don’t know whats going to happen after the boy and the girl kiss, do they get married or realize there not fit for each other. You see the cow celebrating but what about when he gets taken to the sacrifice and it begins to go down. You see that little boy playing music with his instrument but you don’t know if thats the only music he knows or if he learns to play other things. I believe if you look at the picture and don’t look to what may happen next yes it could be a good idea of what perfection looks like.john_keats__ode_on_a_grecian_urn_by_hinamori69-d8xij8t
